Mermaid ideas

Every year there seems to be a new theme everyone wants. Last year it was a unicorn, this year it seems to be a mermaid. So mermaid ideas are needed when you want to throw a mermaid party. 

What is a better mermaid idea then making popsicles that look like a mermaid’s tail? These popsicles are perfect for a mermaid themed party!


How to make popsicles

how to make popsicles? So small confession, when I said I have been wanting to create a mermaid recipe for a while, I should add it was for a cocktail. Ever since my Unicorn Kisses Cocktail has gone viral, I have been wanting to do another whimsical alcohol drink. In my experiments for a mermaid cocktail, these mermaid popsicles came to be.

How did an alcohol drink inspire a kids’ popsicle recipe? Well, I was in the store looking for blue shimmer dust to make the drink shimmer when I spotted edible pearls.

Edible pearls are simply Sixlets chocolate candy with pastel pearlized coating on them. Then the idea popped in my head, why not make a popsicle recipe with the shimmer and pearls.

Since the candy pearls have chocolate in them, I need a flavor that would compliment that. Also, the other issue with creating a mermaid popsicle colors. I knew I wanted blue and some green in this mermaid popsicle recipe.

I went over to the juice aisle in the store to see what sounded like it might go well with chocolate. Then I spotted it, Hawaiian Punch’s Limited time new flavor: White Water Wave. It was coconut pineapple flavor, both flavors go well with chocolate!


Mermaid Popsicles


As the name suggested, it is white-colored not blue. So how can I use that to become a mermaid? Looking in the basket, I saw the blue luster dust I was buying for a mermaid cocktail, BINGO! Now I have 2 mermaid ideas using almost the same ingredients!

So I came home and let my mermaid popsicle recipe development began. I first put a few of the candied pearls into the popsicle molds. The next step was making the mermaid’s tail.

I poured the drink into a measuring glass and added the blue shimmer dust. It did turn the drink blue! Plus as a bonus, it gave this beautiful shimmer to the mermaid drink. Then I poured the drink into each of the popsicle molds.

I noticed immediately that the pearls color coating was blending with the blue drink to make a greenish hue. PERFECT! This kid’s popsicle recipe is starting to look very mermaidish. It needs that final mermaid touch, but what?

Again it was an ingredient I got for the mermaid cocktail that gave this its final wow factor for this popsicle recipe. I got this iridescent sanding sugar for the rim of the glass for the cocktail. What if I just sprinkled a tiny bit of this sugar into the popsicle molds? Would that work in this popsicle recipe?

Then I froze the molds to see if a mermaid popsicle recipe was born. It was! The pearls looked beautiful like scales, on a mermaid’s tail. The sugar looked like shiny bubbles and the whole popsicle had a nice color and shimmer. It was a mermaid frozen treat!

How did it taste? WONDERFUL! I tested with a friend’s daughter and it was approved she told me.
